Wimborne secured the Southern Counties league title
on Saturday in emphatic style with a resounding victory over Walcot, running in twelve tries in the process.
Once again it was an all team effort with telling contributions coming from throughout the side.
In what has been their want this season they started slowly but eventually broke down the Walcot defence when a well rehearsed chip ahead by Tom Moysey was gathered by Anthony Fitch for the opening score out wide.
Wimborne were able to increase their lead soon after when Doug Robertson went over for the first of his brace of tries. Walcot immediately hit back with a try out wide following some missed tackles. This try was converted and the home team advantage was momentarily reduced to three points.
Thereafter Wimborne began to dominate, and with three further scores in the first half, one from Tyler Adams powering over for his second score in as many home matches, and two from Moysey finishing off telling moves to which the Walcot defence had no answers, they went into the half time break very much in command of the game.
Half Time: Wimborne 25 Walcot 7
The second half was pretty much all one way as the Walcot defence tired with Wimborne racking up seven more tries and an unanswered forty nine points haul.
To Walcot’s credit they endeavoured to keep the ball alive often from deep in their own half only to play into Wimborne’s hands as the game broke up
The back line was rampant with Moysey securing his hat trick, Robertson and Fitch adding a second each and Ollie Hamer also getting in on the act with two scores.
The forwards not to be out done played their part with Ed Carter and finally Ryan Sturney finding himself out in the open space to take the final pass.on the end of a sweeping move from deep in their own half.
So a first Southern Counties League title since 2009 for Wimborne with two games to spare although they will now be going all out to win these remaining matches to extend their unbeaten run starting with the visit to Marlborough this coming Saturday.
